Avenged Sevenfold Creates Original Score for Call of the Dead
We’re sure millions of 360 gamers are busy with Black Ops’ latest DLC, Escalation. But can we take a few minutes out of your time, zombie slayers, to tell you about some cool news? Widely known and popular rock band, Avenged Sevenfold, and Treyarch have officially released the track “Not Ready To Die”. This original music single was orchestrated and created just for Escalation’s zombie experience, Call of the Dead.
Treyarch community manager, Mark Lamia, absolutely loves this collaboration. “Being able to collaborate with such talented artists and musicians was an absolute horror and thrill for everyone involved. We think fans are going to go crazy over it.”
Even Avenged Sevenfold’s lead vocalist, M. Shadows, loves the project. “We’re all huge fans of each other’s work and have been talking with Mark and his team at Treyarch about creating something special. So when the opportunity came together to do ‘Not Ready to Die,’ it was a natural fit. We’re stoked to be part of ‘Call of the Dead’.”
You can download/purchase “Not Ready To Die” on iTunes right now. Don’t expect to see it anywhere else online for awhile though because of some exclusive deal. Luckily, below you can experience a thirty second preview of the seven minute long track!
